Rainbow Cake

There is no kid who doesn’t love this cake! It is made with sprinkles, that don’t actually add any particular flavor to this already delicious cake, but make it look really festive and fun! It is a double treat for kids!

This vanilla cake is super spongy, everybody likes it and the sprinkles are an eye-catching colorful addition. No party in the US is complete without a Rainbow or Funfetti Cake, both a kids’ and adults’ favorite. It usually has several layers, but personally I think it is much simpler to make one whole cake and then add a colorful frosting. 

Another option is to make Rainbow Cupcakes; they are awesome!

However, I do not recommend using very light-colored sprinkles because they don’t stand out, or the small round ones either, since they tend to melt. 

Instead of vanilla, you can use lemon, orange or any other flavor of your choosing.

For the frosting, just mix up all the ingredients and add a few drops of food coloring. Personally, I love a pink frosting with the sprinkles on top.
